Can't watch DVD movies
 
I have a Lite On DVD burner/cdrw and I am trying to watch DVD movies on it, but it will not work.
I opened Totem in a terminal and got these errors.

** Message: XINE_META_INFO_SYSTEMLAYER: MNG
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 1-rc5 from http://xine.sf.net
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/hdc with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/hdc for reading
libdvdnav: vm: faild to open/read the DVD


Any ideas. I am running Slackware 10 also.

Thanks,

FX

Try using mplayer. You will get the same problems, but it will eventually work.

I sometimes get the same messages but again it eventually works.

Check if you have permissions to read from /dev/hdc.
